Anyone who's had contact with New York Philharmonic Education, or attended Young People's Concerts or School Day Concerts in recent years, would recognize Theodore (Ted) Wiprud. On May 1, Wiprud, Vice President, Education, was recognized and honored by the Music Educators' Association of New York City (MEANYC) for making a real difference in our community through his dedication to music education.
"Music teachers share with all of us at the Philharmonic a passion for music, and for infusing other people's lives with music," Wiprud said. "I am honored to receive this recognition on behalf of all our musicians and teaching artists who devote their lives to music's transforming power."
